A versatile pair of snake sandals will work with everything in your wardrobe.

2_TAURUSTaurus In the beginning of the month, you’ll feel distracted and move slower. Your body is telling you to take a much-needed vacation! Pack those colorful shorts and your favorite straw hat and treat yourself to a relaxing, peaceful trip out of town—or if that’s not possible right now, at least book yourself a massage.

3_GEMINIGemini August will be a busy month as you go full speed ahead with work projects and social events. As you’re constantly moving around, give your feet a break by slipping on some flat, wear-anywhere strappy sandals or espadrilles with a little embellishment.

4_CANCERCancer Enjoy yourself this month, but make sure to take care of yourself and be mindful of your health. Remember to wear a hat to protect your skin from the harsh summer sun, and plan relaxing weekend trips to unwind from long work weeks.

5_LEOLeo Success will come in both your career and love life! Now is the time to splurge on that special piece of jewelry, like that statement necklace you’ve been eyeing. Also, consider getting a new dress that will take you from the office to a dinner date with a quick change of sandals.

8_SCORPIOScorpio This month will be full of opportunities to show off your creative talents! Have fun with your style and try something different – color-blocking or mixing prints, perhaps?

9_SAGITTARIUSSagittarius Venus will cross paths this month and create many opportunities for your love life. Combat the steamy climate by hitting the beach or pool in that two-piece you’ve been eyeing all season---and don’t forget your sunnies!

10_CAPRICORNCapricorn This month will be full of professional and visionary opportunities. Channel your energy towards thought-out objectives and strategies, and then you will find great success. Update your office attire accordingly with a sharp suit – tweed with pointed-toe flats or peep-toe pumps is totally professional, and will also work into your fashion schedule through fall.

11_AQUARIUSAquarius August will be a comfortable period of happiness and harmony. You’ll be the charming social butterfly, so be prepared to attract lots of new friends (and suitors). Stay relaxed and cute in pretty maxi dresses in look-at-me-now patterns.

12_PISCESPisces Take some time off this month to satisfy your intellectual cravings. If you’re able, venture on a trip to a distant country and engulf yourself in new cultural experiences.
